Sobek with a Khopesh (Reaper's 14381, Nefsokar Devourer of Ammat, painted up by Pingo )

Recommended Posts

That is one nasty looking Lizard Lad, a BEAUTIFULLY painted one, however. I love the background photo...I am a background fan. VERY WELL DONE!

I would never have thought of Sobek as sexy. I suppose you have the be an ancient Egyptian to find a crocodile erotic.

His name is apparently based on the old Egyptian word for "cause to be pregnant," which makes a sort of sense when you think about how the Nile River made Egypt fertile and even possible through its annual flooding of nutrient-rich silt and ready supply of fresh water.

I really like him. The cracks on his chin and chest just look like old scars which is suitable for a croc too. He's tough as well as sexy!

Beautiful work! Love this sculpt, and I concur: while he's made as an ushabti, crocodiles aren't known for their flawlessly smooth skin. Excellent greens and yellows.

      This is Stonehaven's Half-Orc Mechanist, a nice little character for the more open-minded steampunk campaign. The quote in the title of the thread is from Gail Carriger, author of the "Soulless" steampunk series.
       
      I actually finished him around Christmas, but I never put up the Show Off thread. So here he is. Questions, critiques and comments welcome. WIP thread here.

      This is the mermaid from the old Grenadier boxed set #6004, "Monsters of Mythology" from their Fantasy Lords range.
       
      I used to have the set, once upon a time. This was one of my favorite figures from it (though I painted it very differently back in the day and I am pretty sure my memories of how well I painted it are seriously rose-tinted).
       
      There isn't a WIP thread.

      This is 03415, Lanura Windsong, Elf Sorcerer, sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
       
      She's an appealing sculpt -- and popular, judging from all the painted versions in the store and the Inspiration Gallery. I picked her up years ago after seeing someone's lovely version on these forums, and now I've gotten round to her.
       
      She has high boots and a long coat and a cute scarf over short tousled curls. I think of her as a sort of corsair or pirate, maybe, with lots of wands and things. I am looking forward to painting all those spheres on her like colored crystal.
       
      I have been trying to limit the number of female minis I paint with bare midriffs, but she's just so dang cute!
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics, except where noted. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.



       
      I started laying in her skin tone with the darks pure Burnt Umber and the lights a golden-bronze mix of Burnt Umber, Yellow Ochre, and a little Titanium White. I also am spending some time on each pass tucking paint into all the tiny white dots where the paint failed to get into a nook or cranny.



       
      I don't normally paint much with pure black, but here I used some Carbon Black to color her hair and as a wash to lay in a few darker shadows on her and start to contour her face and eye sockets.


      Then I picked up some more highlights with the golden-bronze again, and a little more pure black shading.



       
      And then look, it's a face! Her sclerae are a pale grey mixed from Titanium White and a little Carbon Black. Her pupils are pure Carbon Black, highlights are pure Titanium White. Lips a base of Red Iron Oxide shaded with Burnt Umber and Quinacridone Magenta. Some more contouring with the bronze and Umber shadows and Bob's your uncle.
